Single Crown (CAD/CAM)
Dental Implants are a remarkable advancement in dental science. Implants are permanent restorations used to replace missing teeth. They can replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even stabilize a full denture. They are an attractive alternative to more traditional treatments providing greater stability and security and giving you the natural feeling of your own teeth.
Reasons for dental implants:
- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
- Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
- Restore a patient’s confident smile.
- Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
- Restore or enhance facial tissues.
- Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
Single Implant (Posterior- Healing Cap)
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.
Candidates for complete dentures have lost most or all of their teeth. A partial denture is suitable for those who have some natural teeth remaining. A denture improves chewing ability and speech, and provides support for facial muscles. It will greatly enhance the facial appearance and smile.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported overdentures are held in place by dental attachments which provide the retentive strength that you desire. An attachment retained implant overdenture will provide maximum retention, increase in function, and added health benefits. Implant overdenture attachments are composed of two working components; the implant abutment that is threaded into your implant, and the denture cap which is retained in the underside of your denture.
Tooth colored, or bonded fillings are a great way to restore a tooth with a small cavity or chip. This type of filling an alternative to the traditional "silver" or amalgam fillings. Tooth colored fillings have some significant advantages to amalgam fillings. They seal the tooth better and bond the remaining tooth structure together for increased strength. They can also be used more conservatively requiring less natural tooth to be removed. Additionally they look great! This all helps to restore your tooth to its natural strength and beauty.
